The San Diego Chargers have confirmed former linebacker Junior Seau has died at 43; multiple reports say there was a shooting at his Oceanside, Calif. home.
The details of the shooting were not immediately released.
Chargers chaplain Shawn Mitchell told U-T San Deigo that he was notified of Seau's death.
"Junior was an icon not only in San Diego but throughout the nation. Of course this will affect a lot of people, not in the least the children and kids who look up to him," Mitchell said.
Seau, 43, ended his career in 2009, after playing 20 years in the NFL -- 13 in San Diego, three in Miami and four in New England. he was selected to 12 Pro Bowls and was named first-team All-Pro six times.
Seau was a graduate of Oceanside High School. He was drafted fifth overall out of USC by the Chargers in 1990.
